Venafi was recently recognized as the 2010 “Industry Innovator” in SC Magazine’s competitive Data Protection category. Selected for its unique approach to encryption management, the Venafi encryption management platform was selected from among a crowded playing field for its seamless ability to manage disparate encryption types and technologies—from one end of the enterprise to the other and on many applications and certificate authorities.
According to SC Magazine, “In simple terms, Venafi manages everyone’s encryption products in a single enterprise. While it may not be obvious to the casual observer, there is a lot of encryption within today’s enterprises and not all of it is the same.” This allows organizations to protect sensitive data while improving security and operational efficiency.”
The product is Venafi Encryption Director™, which offers a comprehensive, enterprise–wide encryption management platform that centralizes and automates the management of encryption assets—including keys, certificates and application configurations. Built on an extensible architecture, the holistic approach to encryption management in Director delivers improved data security, critical system uptime, operational efficiency and compliance readiness.
“Venafi hits both of our innovation targets head on,” writes SC Magazine. “First, the technology is novel and it serves a useful purpose in a unique way. From the business perspective, it cleverly leverages the challenge that keeps new players out of the encryption market: it’s very crowded. For Venafi, the more crowded the market, the better. Lots of players exacerbate the problem that Venafi solves.”
